Kanye West is reportedly still making an effort at running for president with evangelical leader Michelle Tidball as his running mate.

West has sought ballot eligibility in Oklahoma, West Virginia, Vermont, Missouri, Illinois and Wisconsin, which is a crucial swing state.

Missouri is reportedly challenging the validity of the signatures.

In New Jersey, after facing allegations of fraudulent signatures by New Jersey elections lawyer Scott Salmon, West dropped his petition to get on the ballot in The Garden State.

West’s running mate is 57-year-old Michelle Tidball. According to Forbes, she lives in Wyoming, describes herself as a “biblical life coach” and in a bible teleconference said that she doesn’t “watch news.”

Kanye, who admittedly has never voted, announced his run for president via Twitter on July 4.
